Smoke Alarms – Make sure you have alarms on every level of your home and regularly check that they are working – replace batteries when necessary
Candles – Always remember to put candles out. particularly before you go to bed or go out
Fire Spread – Close inside doors at night (particularly to your kitchen) to stop a fire from spreading.

Cooking – Check that your cooker is turned off after use and before you go to bed.
Smoking – Stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully. Keep lighters and matches out of reach of children.
Electrical Appliances – Turn heaters off and ensure fireguards are put up, before you go out or go to bed.
